Samsung 3nm 1st generation reaches 'stable' yield, in mass production

Fred Chen


Regarding next-generation GAA processes, the 3nm first-generation process is currently being mass-produced with a stable yield and based on the first-gen mass-production experience, the development of the 3nm second-generation process is progressing rapidly.


Well-known member
Of course it is; they have "perfect yields". You can't get better than 0 defects/cm^2; hence the stability. All jokes aside I do hope we get a nice information dump on at least 3GAE (and hopefully 3GAP) some time soon. I'd love to look at the choices they made and what sort of decisions they made to address the fundamental issues that HNSs need solved.

Here's hoping that 3GAP family is a good entry point for Samsung and that they can make up lost ground.
